Spice Things Up With A Log Cabin Table Runner
Dinner parties and family gatherings have slowed down during our days of social distancing but that doesn't mean your entertainment space should be ignored. In fact, spending more time at home is all the reason to make beautiful things to brighten your mood and surroundings.
I made this simple Log Cabin Table Runner last fall and it has transitioned from pumpkins sitting on top to pine cones in a bowl with an evergreen scented candle.
As Kasada fabric is now showing up in quilt shops, I thought this would be a great time to share this super easy project.
If you haven't made a log cabin block before, this is a great place to start. Traditionally the center of the block represents the heart of the home or the light of the home. With the Kasada fabrics, I chose to have yellow gold as my center and I used contrasting colors to create the blocks. Let your light shine!
Here are a few tips to consider when you're making your table top:
1. You can chain piece to save time.
2. Choose a pretty backing so you get two looks!
Two more reasons why I like table runners:
1. They are a small project that I can practice quilting.
(This is also why I'm not sharing any detailed close up shots.)
2. They make wonderful gifts!
I would love to see how your table runners and projects with Kasada turn out. If you post a picture on Instagram, please tag me with @cmanningsews!
While you're here, take a gander at the new swag that's now available!
I wanted to offer some products for makers and anyone looking to wear or decorate with joy! You already have enough of the basics don't you?
